The birthday boy with his party hat, Maggie with her tiara and Rookie with his "Happy Birthday" sign. Look closely and you will see the moon pie with the "1" candle, the stuffed animal party favors, their dog biscuits and the balloons that my DAD blew up for the occasion!! That's the great part because we can't just commit my mom. Dad has to go too!
Jake reveling in the joy of "his" day. I hope you can see that his party hat says "Birthday Boy". Ay-Yi-Yi!!
Day one of our honeymoon in Mexico...and I had been tanning for the wedding!
Day 3....Shoot, I'm a bronze goddess in this pic
This is my family after the before mentioned day of fun in the sun! They put the pale kids on the end. You can hardly even see my dad's face he's so dark. I'm proud of Dave and I in this picture though. We're sportin' some serious pigment!
This was mid-June Last year after a day of laying out with my friends and a day on the golf course for Dave. We are SO tan! (Or maybe so pink...) There may be hope for our little karma chameleons yet!
Granola baby (I kid! I live in Austin, I had to!)
That is one FINE piece of machinery!
You see, now, years later, these stories are funny. I realize that it doesn't matter what you drive as long as you get there. I appreciate my parents for giving me a car instead of me having to buy my own. It might not have been the coolest car in town (ok, it was NOT the coolest car in town) but it worked and character building it did! I can safely say, my kids will not be getting new cars either and there is no whining they can do because they can't top me. Hopefully a few of you had some great times in the Maxima and the Intrepid! There you have it America....what was your first car?
PS....I do have to admit that both of these dazzling cars had sunroofs....There was a bit of glamour...
PPS...Neither of these are actually photos of MY car, because I would have to go through photos at my parent's house to find some. The digital camera was a clutch invention. But this is exactly what both of my cars looked like so you get the idea.
Look at this precious face!!
Have a great week!
